Breaking news: the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) London, England took notice of the new release of TouchFocus™ electronic LCD lens eyewear with licensed technology by eVision™ Optics. The news release featured a story on the new product and how it works.

In a recent news report, a BBC reporter introduced the eVision™ technology and demonstrated how the new hi-tech glasses offer an alternative to bifocals utilizing LCD lenses that change focus with a touch. TouchFocus™ eyewear is available in retail stores in Toyko, Japan and is owned by parent company Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. The new eyewear with built in electronic technology helps overcome the vision issues caused by presbyopia. Presbyopia is the loss of near focus as we age and according to a global report by Market Scope (2012), the number of presbyopes is expected to soar to 2.1 billion by 2020.

A video produced by the BBC shows the stylish eyewear in use. The reporter demonstrates how the eyewear electronically changes orientation of liquid crystals to shift the focus of the lenses to near reading like bifocals with a touch on the side of the frames. The reporter returns the eyewear to normal prescription viewing with another touch on the frames.
